Abstract : This report is the second in a series of user's guides to SHALW, a numerical model that simulates shallow-water wave growth, propagation, and decay in a directional spectrum over an arbitrary bathymetry. The original report (Instruction Report CERC-86-2) was titled 'A User's Guide to SHALWV: Numerical Model for Simulation of Shallow-Water Wave Growth Propagation, and Decay'. Future enhancements to the model will be added to the series. The report herein presents a numerical model for estimating hurricane wave conditions in arbitrary water depths, including a discussion of wind input to SHALWV, changes in the model, and model verification. The major changes made to the model allow a better representation of wind wave growth in rapidly turning winds. (Author)
